3 Ways Landscape Design Increases Property Value, Blairsville, Georgia

Whether selling your house is a priority on your to-do list now or in the future, landscape design is a fantastic avenue for increasing property value. According to the National Association of Realtors®, the right landscaping boosts property value by 10 to 12 percent. There are many ways to improve your landscape based on your aesthetic taste and the style of your house. Learn how this exciting design project will improve the worth of your home.

Top 3 Ways Landscape Design Improves Property Value

1. Curb Appeal

Landscape design remains one of the top ways to increase your property’s curb appeal. Buyers are much more interested in a property with a mowed, edged lawn, a variety of plants and flowers, and attractive hardscape, than one without these matters. They typically gravitate towards landscapes with evergreens as well as beautiful annuals and perennials. Buyers also prefer landscaping complementary to the architectural style of the house. For example, if your home is a rustic bungalow, a large water feature on the front lawn would look out of place.

2. Energy Efficiency

Large trees and evergreen shrubs in strategic locations insulate your home, so it is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Heating and cooling units subsequently do not have to work as hard, resulting in lower utility costs. Many buyers desire energy-efficient features and are willing to pay more for an eco-friendly house.

3. Privacy & Noise Reduction

A carefully-thought-out landscaping plan also contributes to privacy and noise reduction. Properties featuring broadleaf evergreen plants and shrubs create a sanctuary-like atmosphere buyers almost always desire over barren landscapes.
